Overview

I love helping authors share their stories. I'm a trained journalist turned freelance writer-editor who's also a certified health coach and yoga instructor. Over the last decade, I’ve been a co-author, contributor, ghostwriter, and editor for both articles and books. My clients include: Time (Oxmoor House), Hay House, The Experiment, Ulysses Press, HarperOne, Callisto, Beachbody, Under Armour Connected Fitness, The Biggest Loser, SparkPeople, No Meat Athlete, and Gaia Herbs.

As an editor, I'm here to help you through the publishing process, from query letters and book proposals to proofreading and marketing. I can be as involved as you'd like me to be, from full-on ghostwriting to light editing. Here's what I can offer you: writing and editing query letters, sample chapters, and book proposals; market research and marketing plans; ghostwriting and research; developmental and copy editing; proofreading and fact-checking; recipe development and testing. I'm here every step of the way, to guide and support you.

I'm open to questions, so ask away.
